Exclamation Vincent the rescue needs some help.

Mkay, first off I think we have fin rot, or either a case of tail biting.
I am going for the tail biting, because I see no whitish rotting edges you know?
There is a possibility SOMHOW the petstore person managed to close his tail in the lid, bc I found a little piece of tail right there at the lid.

So here is what he is displaying.
Lethargy, and leaning against the wall, only coming up to breathe, and it looks like he has a hard time getting up.
He swan kind of erratically for a second after getting air, then stopped and swam back to his spot on the wall.
I haven't fed him yet, since I just got him home, and he is going in the 1 gallon hospital tank with a little plant I will probably throw away afterwards due to contamination.

Daily 100% water changes are the number one medication IMO/E. After a few days if the tail is looking worse you could do a natural treatment with aquarium salt 1tsp/gal along with the daily 100% water changes for 10 days.

The tail isn't looking worse... Just the only problem is, is that he has trouble swimming, like he shakes his tail to swim, like a booty dancer or something and looks like he is struggling.
I have gave him a salt bath each night when I change is water.
